Today the grade 7’s are extending their previous assignment to include the use of fraction strips. Watch the video below to get assistance for using these. You can also download the assignment and the handout from class.
Here are a few videos to watch that will help you to understand our upcoming Math assignments.
Start by watching this video for the basics of what Algebra is and how it can be used.
Watch this video for an intro to the terms “constant”, “coefficient”, and “like terms”. Your sumdog assignment this week has you solving single variable equations. Watch this video to find out how to “simplify an equation”.
We also covered these two worksheets (answer keys are there to help you learn the concept). These will help guide you into the sumdog challenge questions you are about to face.
This week the grade 7’s and 8’s are going to have very similar assignments as they learn the Pythagorean Theorem and how it relates to square numbers, roots, and more. Watch the video below for an introduction to the concept. Then you may access the assignment scans below.
Note: that the grade 7’s are doing assignment 1.12 whereas the grade 8’s are doing assignment 1.2
Note: it is always a best practice to review all the examples of the assignment prior to engaging in the assigned questions in order to know the potential strategies. Also, if yo are stumped on a question you can always refer to the examples for help.
Today we started talking about division and how there are certain patterns to figure out if a number is divisible by another number. We started with some division drills and then moved on to the assignment in the link below. It can be found in our textbooks in the classroom but this pdf will work as well. Also, Mr. Ewert has provided copies of this assignment and they can be found on the Math shelf at the back of the classroom.
